Hi Ted,

No, there isn't a specific reason for unicode 7 and I forgot to mention
this in my cover letter.  I have successfully generated the data file
for 10.0.0 with the mkutf8data script, but I couldn't validate it
entirely yet.  I walked through changelogs to make sure any relevant
changes where there, but I'm not done yet.  You can definitely expect
new versions of the patchset to support 10.0.0.
